DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -Iowa coach Todd Lickliter has been released from an Iowa City hospital after undergoing a procedure to repair a tear in his carotid artery.
Lickliter spoke about the operation to stent his carotid artery for the first time on a radio show Tuesday. He had been hospitalized Friday.
Lickliter says he was having headaches when the Hawkeyes were in Kansas City in late November. Doctors discovered the beginning of a tear in his carotid artery - which is a vessel that supplies blood to the brain - and performed the procedure Saturday.
Lickliter says doctors have advised him to rest for the remainder of the week.
Lickliter has missed two games, including Tuesday's date at Northern Iowa. He will likely be out Friday when Iowa faces Iowa State.
